Canada see off N. Zealand

CANADA sealed their qualification from the group stage at the Women’s World Cup courtesy of a 2-0 victory over New Zealand in Grenoble.

Though the least impressive of the two teams from the off, New Zealand were unlucky when C.J. Bott left the pitch injured after just 15 minutes with suspected broken fingers after her hand was in the receiving end of a powerful ball.

Canada dominated proceedings throughout with the vast majority of possession. New Zealand defended well and saw off a barrage of attempts by the Canadians, but were unable to keep possession in the midfield rendering any counter-attack almost impossible. – Eurosport
